XLR8R presents its weekly roundup of artist tours worth leaving the comfort of your apartments to see. Here’s a look at what’s coming your way, post-tax season.

After releasing Tears of the Valedictorian (Absolutely Kosher), Canadian indie rockers Frog Eyes will make audiences across the U.S. leap to its leftfield organ-pop. Meanwhile, the DFA’s resident Casio-punks Hot Chip will annihilate America, supporting their eclectic installment for !K7’s acclaimed DJ Kicks series. Kingston-born dancehall star Richie Spice exudes his posi-rasta vibes from Stowe, VT to Milano, Italy, supporting his In the Streets to Africa release, and Rhymesayers’ Islamic albino Brother Ali rallies troops for two solid months with his heated, indie-angst raps. It’s go-time.
